Intel introduces miniscule SSD

Written by


1/8 of 2.5-inch standard
Intel has launched a new series of miniature SSDs aimed at particularly compact devices and embedded systems.

The SSD 310 series is based on MLC technology and comes in two capacities, 40GB and 80GB. The larger driver offers read/write speeds of up to 200/70MB, while the 40GB version delivers 170MB/s and 35MB/s.

This is rather impressive performance considering the size of the new drives. At 51x30x5mm they are roughly eight times smaller than regular 2.5-inch drives and they feature a mini-SATA connector. The tiny dimensions will allow manufacturers to incorporate them into a wide range of mobile devices, such as very thin netbooks and tablets and there is also an interesting expansion option.

The 40GB drive is priced at $99, while the 80GB version goes for $179.
